What travelers say:

Located in Phoenix Park. Since parking is not allowed on the roadside in front of the mansion, the bus stopped at a far place. After looking for it for a long time, it was not found. I asked the three locals in the park and finally found it. In fact, the place where I asked for directions for the first time was not far away, and I imagined it was time to go forward. On the way back, I met the person who asked for directions for the first time, and I found it by showing us the way again. Mainly because the building is some distance away from the highway, it will be ignored if you don't pay attention. The appearance of the presidential residence is still good, but I can't see the whole picture from a distance. It was raining and it was time to board the bus. I panicked and took a few photos before rushing to the boarding location.

Additional Information

Introduction

Aras an Uachtarain means "House of the President." While today it functions as the official residence of the President of Ireland, the Aras an Uachtarain dates to the 1780's - before the office of President even happened. At the time it was used as the summer residence of the British Lord Lieutenant of Ireland. It turned into the official residence almost by accident: When the office of President was created in 1937, Douglas Hyde, the first president, lived there temporarily while plans were made to construct a new presidential palace on the grounds. When WWII broke out, the plans were eliminated, and over time the residence became the official dwelling. Aras an Uachtarain is open for tours at no cost every Saturday.
